Tea Party Patriots thanks House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz for his efforts to impeach Obama’s IRS commissioner

The threats to our critical infrastructure include EMPs; geomagnetic disturbances; and cyber attacks that could potentially shut down our electrical ...

Veterans Affairs secretary: ‘When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line or what’s important?’

Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald Monday apparently downplayed the severity of the wait-list scandals that have plagued the department, left veterans without timely care and, in some cases, been the difference between life and death – a metric, the secretary implied, that should be trashed altogether.

What's important is, what's your satisfaction with the experience?" McDonald said Monday during a Christian Science Monitor breakfast with reporters. "And what I would like to move to, eventually, is ...
